Remington Recall (Model 700, Model Seven)

Do you own a Remington Model 700 or Model Seven? If so, there has been a safety recall for issues with the X-Mark PRO (XMP) triggers manufactured from May 1, 2006 to April 9, 2014.
The description of the issue is, the “… triggers could, under certain circumstances, unintentionally discharge.” They say this is due to excess bonding agent used to assemble the triggers. You can read the full recall notice, here.
If you want to check if your model is effected by the recall, you can enter the serial number on the recall website,
This recall applies to all Model 700 and Model Seven rifles as the XMP trigger is “standard equipment.”
If you have a rifle that is effected by the recall, Remington will send you shipping materials, to send back your rifle, and Remington will cover all costs for shipping, inspection, and repairs.
One of my rifles, a Model 700 Tactical, is effected by the recall. So I’m awaiting shipping information so I can send the rifle in. I’ll let you know if I have any issues…

Update – 5/7/2014

I received a return box from Remington for my rifle as well as an e-mail containing a UPS shipping label and the details around the repair work.
The communication hasn’t been great, but I slowly got all of the information over the period of about a week. So if you are waiting on hearing back, you should get some e-mails with shipping information and eventually get a box for sending the rifle out.
